Advantages: Small, Lightweight, very compatiable, easy to use
Disadvantages: Can't buy you a pint!
Since I have had the IIIc I have actually been organized for the first time in my life!!! But don't think its just a organizer with a few extra's this is a small computer with lots of extra's!!!! The main advantage the 3c has over other palms is that it's colour which is a BIG advantage when playing games which you can download hundreds of!!!! Then you have it's IR facility which enables you to do all sort's of things:
- Play IR games with other palm owners
- control other things that use IR ie TV, VCR, DVD...
- Print to printers with IR capabilities ie HP laser 6p
- Syncronise with laptops or PC's with IR
The IR is one of the things I love about the 3C but not the only. The Graffity pen is a very handy tool it let's you write on the screen with the pen provided and it turns your handwritting into text! Or if you don't like that idea you can bring a keyboard on screen and type on that, and if your still not happy put the Palm in it's cradle connected to you PC and type direct into your PC then syncronise and it's on your Palm.
Overall there's not much the 3com PalmIIIc can't do... If it's not allready on the palm ten minutes searching the web you should get what your looking for!
And because of the size of these programs you can install loads onto the palm! Most applications are between 10k and 80k and the 3c has 8Mb of memory so there is loads of room for all the cr*p you can find. It has a 256 colour screen which you can look at photo's from your PC on or even moives from your PC!!!!
